Sony sells more than 300 000 PlayStation Vita devices in just two days

The Japanese electronics giant has sold 321 400 units of the new portable PlayStation Vita gaming device in just two days.

This news makes the Vita a strong competitor to Nintendo 3DS.

The device was launched on the Japanese market and although Sony sold 50 000 units less than main competitor Nintendo 3DS which sold 371 000 units in the first two days after launch, the figures provided by research firm Enterbrain predict a good future for the PlayStation Vita especially when we take into account that Nintendo is and has been the market leader in this particular market segment.

Sony hopes it will beat Nintendo 3DS in sales. The effort will be helped by the sharp drop in Nintendo sales as initial hype died down and a large part of mobile gaming shifted to smartphones and tablets. In addition the offered 3D turned out to be more of a gimmick rather than something real.

The new PlayStation Vita is the successor to the PlayStation Portable (PSP) and is completely compatible with games made for the PSP which will definitely help both gamers and sales. Sony has sold 73 million PSP handsets to date.

The PlayStation Vita will debut in Hong Kong and Taiwan in the next few days while the official launch for the USA, Europe and Australia will occur in late February 2012.
